|Lemons 8x8" Acrylic (SOLD)|
Interested in upcoming events including a 9 day workshop in Venice Italy in June 2017? Here are the details.
Door County, WI is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. Its a lovely peninsula that juts out into Lake Superior. I had the pleasure of teaching a 4 day workshop there in July, and enjoyed every minute of it. The homes and gardens and marinas - to die for! The paintings were some of my demos during that time.

Door County - there are so many beautiful barns and pastures!

This morning I saw a facebook video by a writer who described the struggles of growing into the artist you aspire to be. I shared it on my facebook page, "Patti Mollica Art". It's for real.

I worked on this piece at the same time as it's sister piece (below) - I wanted them to work together, as a series. Maybe I will paint another one so that there are 3 in the series - or 4... I have a lot of bad photos to choose from!

I just fished this painting out of a pile of old flops that I have been storing forever, knowing that there are problems I have to deal with someday - or just trash it. I had painted a largish figure on the left walking towards me, and a smaller figure crossing the street. I didn't like either of them for a number of reasons. So... time to paint over them and wrestle with 'now what do i do'.
The first obvious idea was to cut the panel down to 18x24 now that both focal points are gone. But panels are so hard to cut and... jeez, what a cop out! So I stared at it and thought - ah - a biker! I put one in and now the piece is feeling like it has some potential. The reference looks like it was from 19th street and 6th ave - where the old Bed Bath and Beyond was - or still is? Other than the biker, the city reference is long gone, so I will just keep staring at it, keep wondering 'what do i do now" , try out some ideas, and hope for the best!

|"Pepper Party" 8x10, Acrylic $295 Click for Info|
My recently posted pepper painting was commissioned by Strathmore Paper Company, for the front cover of their new product, black canvas paper pads, which you can find in retail art stores. I could not reveal that information until they officially introduced the product on their website. Nor could I offer the painting for sale because they needed the actual artwork to photograph. It arrived back today, and is available for any would-be collectors.
BTW If you've never worked on a black surface, try it, you'll like it. The colors really pop!

I've painted this image many times, it's from a photo I took at a Times Square intersection. I like to experiment and use the same reference to take paintings to a new place, try out new ideas. Here's a new place...

Way back in August of '2000, I sat at Franklin Street in Tribeca, sketching the view, thinking I might do a painting of it. I never did, but recently ran across the photo and sketches (below). I decided to give it a try, and to my surprise the painting took on a colorful life of its own.
